When her father’s debts, brought on by heavy drinking, threaten Leah Carlson’s family ranch, she fights to save it. When handsome banker Steven Harding must decline her loan request, he determines to do what he can to help. Just as he arrives to serve as a much-needed ranch hand, Leah’s family secrets—and the pain of her past—come to a head. They could destroy everything she’s fought for. And they could keep her from ever opening her heart again.
This is western historical romance that offers hope and healing to the deepest wounds in a woman’s past.
Miralee Ferrell is one of those authors that I place on my must read, must buy list so I own a copy to lend out. From her earlier contemporary novels to her latest western novels, you will find they are not just “western romance”. When you read one of her books, you will meet characters that are dealing with real life issues of pain and in this book, abandonment. Throughout the book, she draws you into the story to make you want to walk through the issues with them, and discover more about them, and watch a sweet romance develop without too many details. This book would be good for teens or adults, the whole series is excellent, from beginning to end.
I would have to say one of my favorite parts was, probably the secondary story with Charles Pape, I won’t give anything away about it, but it was really fun! I loved the light humor that was woven throughout the story, but also, seeing the characters from the previous books as well.
This is not just another “western romance”, this is a story that takes place in the west with what feels like, real people. You will fall in love with the author and the book. Head to the store and place this on order now! You won’t be sorry!
